sure rtech
almost all of my friends have pulsar 180 and a few of them have karizmas,in my family we have plenty of bullets,and other bikes like elim,etc
the feeling when i get when i ride a bullet cannot be compared to Any other bike,the sound,the ride,the intial thrust all together put you in another world!
for me this feeling i havent gotten from any other bike(kari or my lovely elim)but by my friends's pulsar 180

here the bikes arent being compared,the feeling you get when u ride a bike is being compared

aadix, the bullets you mentioned here, are they 350 or 500?? Coz, there is a world of difference between 350 and 500. I doubt the 500 "ride feeling" can be compared to the P180.

Yup, after having ridden them both, I have to agree with shravan. I do not see any similarity between the Bullet and the P180. Maybe one actually, both the gearbox's suck!

You're right shravan, but getting used to a box doesn't make it a nice box! I had a early 80's Suzuki GS450 and that thing had a gearbox that was smooth as hot butter.

Everyone gets used to riding/driving his own vehicle, and you subconsciously compensate for its shortcomings, but the problem still exists. For example, I was the only one who could start that old Suzuki, nobody else could ever get it started !!

Hey, I guess we can call it "character" right!!

How on earth is it possible??
When i rode the two bikes, i could feel a world of difference, the torque of 500s is mindblowing, far far ahead of the 350s. The vehicle just propels forward, like no other thing!
